There is no way for us to know. Ask around the local community. Sorry to hear about that. Jim Hill, Webmaster
I am not aware of any State program in Minnesota which provides roadside tributes as do states like Florida and Missouri. The only option is taking risk in placing something there yourself. This can also be removed depending upon where it was placed. I will email what I know about that.
That is actually a very good idea that gets around some of the danger of building a tribute site and also may help reduce the chance that the state or local government removes it. Sorry for you loss and may God bless you during this difficult phase. Jim Hill, webmaster
I am sorry that your tribute site was removed, it may have done either by the highway people, state or local government or the property owner. Sometimes they are viewed as a distraction for drivers.
If you have a photo of it from your phone, please register here on the site and create a virtual tribute site.

Many people decorate tributes sites, either the ones they built or the ones placed there by their state governement through their formal memorial marker programs.
The states that have a policy for providing tribute markers do, at least in the case of Florida, limit the length of time that they are displayed. However, the State of Florida never seems to get around to removing them. That state provides tribute markers in the shape of a round plaque on a metal pole and not a cross once a relative or friend pays for it. So perhaps it is not very distracting to drivers.
Hello, I am very sorry for your loss. I understand as I have had so far two friends commit suicide.
The State of Colorado has a memorial sign program. To begin the process follow the following link:

Evidently this is a private marker not one placed there by the state of Texas. The easiest way to locate this is to search online for something like “fatal accident at xxx” where xxx is the street location, say something like “5th and Main.” Include the name of the city. “Fatal accident on 5’th and Main in Decatur, Texas.” Etc.
I am sorry for your loss. Since you are in Florida here is the process that you need to follow:
I am not sure how long this takes but the State of Florida is very serious about getting this done for you.
Again, I am sorry for your loss.

It is hard to know why your tribute site got removed, we are very sorry to hear that this happened. There are two main reasons that they get removed. First, the state, local or country government sometimes takes these down if they are an impediment to travel in some way. These governments sometimes also have very strict laws about them. Second, the property owner may have removed it. With that said, you don’t have a lot of options. If you live in a state with a formal program then you could contact them to start the process to get a tribute site built. Look on this web site to determine the laws for your state: State Laws.
